BookExpo America is turning out great. I did a talk, “What is LibraryThing and Why Should You Care?” (the program had some other title). It was refreshing to look at LibraryThing from a book-industry and publisher perspective again—most of my talks are aimed at libraries these days.
The talk was well attended, but not exactly crowded. I blame this on Clay Shirky (author of Here Comes Everybody), scheduled down the hall from me in the same time slot. Even I wanted to sneak out of my talk and go see his. Fortunately, Abby and I caught up with Clay afterwards, and we ended up going to dinner together. What a great dinner that was!
